CLARISSE AT FMX 2018

From April 24 to April 26, drop by room Heilbronn and discover the awesome features released in the latest version of Clarisse!

 

 

 

 

 

From Substance Painter to Clarisse

Using Clarisse's powerful referencing system and the all-new shading variables released with Clarisse 3.6, you’ll learn how to create a fast bridge between both software to quickly apply and efficiently share your shaders in a very production-driven way. Making use of Clarisse’s interactivity, its render to texture feature and ability to process huge amounts of geometry, you’ll discover how Clarisse can be used as a powerful texture generator.

Shadow Catcher for Artists

Thanks to the new Shadow Catcher, background plates can now easily receive shadows and color bleeding of CG elements in your scenes greatly simplifying live action integration. Clarisse 3.6 also introduces at the same time a new LPE unoccluded event to extract diffuse, reflection and transmission occlusions in your custom LPEs. During this presentation we will look at different user cases and dive deep into the many possibilities the Shadow Catcher has to offer Artists

 

Going Further with NPR rendering using the Outline Shader

The Outline Shader has many attributes that give Artists extensive control over the final look of their image. Using the new Outline Shader we will experiment with different combinations of techniques such as render to texture, camera occlusion and compositing in order to achieve different NPR looks from blueprint to Anime.

Case Study: Tropical Paradise - Creating XXXL environments in no time!

Clarisse's flexibility and interactivity are key when building large scenes. In this presentation we will put together a massive tropical environment made up of an island and its lagoon. We will look-dev imported assets, add scatterers, show you how to refine the layout for each shot using particle paint and scopes as well as set up lights to take you to the final render.

 

THE FUTURE OF CLARISSE

Come and discover the collection of new exciting top secret features we have coming your way in the next versions of Clarisse!

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Join us for a look at how ILM used Clarisse to bring to life the futuristic world of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

 

Flying down the Champs Elysées

Shooting live-action plates of the most beautiful avenue in the world during the christmas holidays was impossible, so in order to complete the sequence Mikros had to rebuild the full environment in CG to provide backgrounds for green screen close-ups, as well as full CG medium and wide shots. Mikros needed a specific tool to gather a large range of assets in a single scene ready for rendering, and added Clarisse as its tool of choice into its Maya/Arnold pipeline.

Cube Creative - Have you ever seen a ballet of snails ?

Discover how Cube Creative used Clarisse to bring to life Nicolas Deveaux's new short film "1 mètre/heure" featuring photo-realistic snails dancing on the wing of an airplane!

 

The Visual Effects of Marvel's Inhumans - a presentation by DNEGTV

DNEG CG Supervisor Andy Heagrave will talk about the creative and technical challenges behind DNEG TV's work on Marvel's Inhumans.
